This body of work is a translation of my emotional response to that particular landscape. Visually I’m captured by the changing light and atmosphere over the hills and through the trees, but there is also a calm quality to this particular area I’m drawn to. I feel good when I walk this track and hills in a way that is unique to this spot. It may be just that it draws on my memories as a child of the property I grew up on. I remember lying in bed looking through the window watching the Manuka sway and wondering how someone could possibly paint it, it’s a little surreal to be back at that point, looking at the trees and wondering how I can paint them.
An important part of my painting of these landscapes is recognising our duty of care as humans. We are the ones who need to restore this earth to a sustainable level. This message is not overt but by painting aesthetically perhaps others may feel some of what I feel towards our Earth and Mother and take a little more care.
